When I navigate to memtest and hit Enter nothing happens other than a brief visual glitch.
@MrChromebox I am not sure if this issue relates to Coreboot. I see exactly this issue when e.g. booting from the OEM or live image and choose the memtest from the Grub menu.
And yes, I would also like to see this fixed since being able to run a memtest from a USB stick would be very helpful. I have not yet tested if this issue also applies to a PureOS installation.
(tested with latest OEM image 2019-07-14)
@nicole this isn't a coreboot issue. If you boot a Qubes 4.0.1 ISO (eg) and run memtest from there, it works perfectly fine.
The issue with memtest bundled with coreboot (removed for current 4.9-1 release) is the toolchain used to compile memtest. That causes a freeze at the start of testing. With the PureOS ISO, memtest is failing to run at all. Given the different symptoms, I suspect a different root cause. But either way, unrelated to our coreboot firmware.
That's what I wrote?
This is not Coreboot, it is a PureOS issue.
Since memtest was removed from Coreboot, I assume for good reason, we need to get the PureOS memtest (started from Grub) working again.
On the KDE Plasma release from 31 August when I try to run the memtest menu entry it merely says "/live/memtest not found." I'll test the latest build from today but are we including the memtest binary?
